2011 Mustang Clutch bypass

What is the Trigger Wire pin for clutch bypass on a 2011 Mustang GT Fortin Evo One with the Thar-For4 T Harness?

I checked regular installation guide and Thar-For4 guide and I do not see any ground out wire on the diagram. Ive considered running a relay off the starter (+) to power the relay which would be triggered by the ebrake signal and that relay would then bypass the clutch switch. The only issue I have with that is if the ebrake is up and car is in gear and someone else gets in my car it will start without the clutch.

I see many of the other Fortin Guides have specific Manual install guides trigger wires with diodes for the clutch bypass. I do not see any off this for 10-14 Mustangs.

The generic evo-one guide has info on all the generic wiring. https://cdn02.fortin.ca/download/68451/rm441-install-guide-68451.pdf

 

Clutch is a (-)trigger, Blue/orange wire at clutch switch. 

 

Could use dark blue A8 - GWR, green A4 (-)ignition, or white A5 (-)start

So with a (-) Trigger I would only need to directly splice A5 into the Blue/Orange clutch switch? This needs an inline Diode to prevent backfeeding of a ground when the clutch is being used in normal operation? 1 Amp diode should work as that is what the other guides suggest?
Dont need a diode. It's only used on other guides when more than one clutch trigger is needed so that the circuits stay isolated from each other.
I really appreciate all of your help. Preparing for an install this weekend and trying to make sure I cover all my bases!

 

So with this I see some people using a relay with the ground as the trigger wire and splicing into both sides of the clutch switch. Could I just splice in the ground to the computer side of the clutch switch with this ground?
Clutch bypass is different on every make-model and year.

All you hsould need on a 2011 mustang is the output of evo to clutch trigger on car.
